    Should be located on side of transmission. You should be able to do yourself once you find. Autozone usually able to print you step by step repair information on many jobs.

    Are you sure it's a speed sensor? Sounds like a location of a abs sensor? Maybe someone replaced hub/bearing assembly (which usually includes abs sensor) with wrong one that should have had abs sensor attached. You may also be able to replace only sensor. I'm not a mechanic- i'm a parts guy but never seen a speed sensor at wheel. Sometimes with some trucks on differential but not wheel ??
